Adrenaline Mob Announce New Drummer
Adrenaline Mob announced earlier this year that drummer Mike Portnoy would be exiting the band, but that didn’t mean the demise of the group. The group has just announced details of their new album and has named Twisted Sister’s A.J. Pero as Portnoy’s replacement.
The band will release their second full-length album ‘Men of Honor’ on Feb. 18 via Century Media Records. Their 2012 debut ‘Omerta’ and 2013 EP ‘Coverta’ were released through Century Media worldwide, and going forward the label will also represent Adrenaline Mob in North America.
In addition to Pero, the rest of Adrenaline Mob’s lineup includes vocalist Russell Allen (Symphony X), guitarist Mike Orlando and bassist John Moyer (Disturbed). Allen and Orlando wrote and produced ‘Men of Honor.’
So where did the album name come from? “My dad came up with the title, believe it or not,” reveals Orlando. “We were thinking about names for the record, and he said ‘Why don’t you guys call it ‘Uomini D’Onore’ [translation: ‘Men of Honor’]?’ I knew that was it. We’re tight like brothers. This is a musical gang. The message is to stand strong with Adrenaline Mob. Regardless of what’s changed, we are men of honor, and we will honor this entity until we die.”
Adrenaline Mob will be streaming a song each week leading up to ‘Men of Honor’s’ release.
